My Grandfather, Robin Lang, recently passed away and I have began digitizing old family photographs and documents. This is an on-going labour, and will be on-going for a awhile to come. At first I offered to scan, sight unseen mind you, all of his photo albums for the family’s sake; but I nearly reneged on my offer when I saw 10 boxes packed with photo albums. Thousands and thousands of photos. I didn’t want to back out, so I took one box to start and began in a selective way with the pieces that seem to carry the most gravity: weddings, wars, births, etc.
